Present Perfect game

Present Perfect game | English Tricks 4U | Scoop.it

Here are 3 lines of words.

The 1st one: the subjects

The 2nd: key words

The 3rd: the verbs

 

Take one card of each line. Three in total. If you make a correct sentence orally, you can keep the cards. Otherwise, you put them back. The winner is the player who collects the most cards!

 

If you want to make it more challenging, you can add a 4th line with two question marks, 2 crosses that represent the negative form and one or more fullstops. Each time you have to collect 1 card of each line again, which means 4 cards in total.

For example: Olga has already been in England.

or Hatboy hasn't cooked yet...

 

In case you want your Ss to write down the sentences, you can download this worksheet:https://www.facebook.com/370873303090306/photos/pb.370873303090306.-2207520000.1428778389./418761771634792/?type=3&theater

These two l letters are presented as apple trees. One of the apples falls and says “aw !” . So, remember: whenever you see an apple under these two apple trees, it says “aw” because it’s disappointed.

Papadeli Sophia's insight:

A is for Anne. 


E is for Ed.

He is sleeping.

He ´s not talking. 

That ´s why he is not pronounced.

 

Look at T.

She ´s surprised with open arms:

“Oh, you ate all the popcorn! 8 of them!”

Memorable presentation of Simple Past. Mom and dad are asking the child in the middle: "Did you break the window?" Look at the child at the next slide saying: "No, I didn't" You can also see the mom pointing at the child, saying: 'You did it!" All forms of Simple Past are presented as characters. Mom and Dad are asking the child in the middle questions about the past : "Did you...?" An unforgettable way to present this grammar topic. Once you present this family to your students, they will never forget how to ask about the past...Amazing results!

My favourite card game

My favourite card game | English Tricks 4U | Scoop.it

Language

e.g. adjectives ( happy/sad, old/young, tall/short, fat/thin......)

 

Material

card, glue, scissors

 

Procedure

1. Give each pair a copy of the pictures and the words as they are above . Then ask pupils to stick their photocopies onto card and cut out the 17 cards.

2. Pupils shuffle the cards and hand them out (one pupil wil l have 9 cards and the other 8). Pupils should hold their cards in their hand without letting their partner see them.

3. Tell them that the aim of the game is to get rid of their cards forming pairs of pictures and words. To do so they must get rid o the “Grumpy Grandpa” card which does not have a pair.

4. First, each pupil puts the pairs they already have got face up on the table, saying the adjectives out loud. The other player checks that the picture and word cards match.

5. Now pupils take turns picking a card from each other’s hand (without seeing which one it is). Then they check if they can form a new pair. If they can, they put the cards down, say the words out loud, and offer the cards left in their hand to their partner to choose from.

6. The game continues until one pupil has no cards left and the other pupil is left with the “Grumpy Grandpa” card.

Alphabet crafts: Ηh-Tt

Alphabet crafts: Ηh-Tt | English Tricks 4U | Scoop.it

The best way to learn the alphabet is presenting stories for each letter, draw characters that help Ss visualize the shapes and sound. Craft is the best memory trick!

Many thanks to our 6 - year - old artists!...

 

How I present the letters:

One letter a day, both cases. I make a story about them and draw the letters as characters. I always teach them in a song I make up
e.g. HH, Hh, hat
Hh, Hh, hat
It sounds like a rap song with some clapping


H is the mother and h is the daughter. They both wear hats. Soft hats. That ´s because they live in a very hot country. They never wear shoes because they hate noise. They always whisper. Hhhhhhh
They are family. They do the same things. So, they are presented together.
They have a surname. Mrs Hat is short but proud of her tall and thin daughter. That ´s why she ´s so happy...
They could also be presented as father and son and represent the pronoun he. I give names as Helen, Hope... You could add bubbles to make them say their favourite words such as Hello, Hi... They are sociable, like meeting people and they have best friends. They usually go out with c...ch and make other sounds.

I teach vocabulary visually by drawing a verb or word but it ´s always a part of a story. A is usually a girl called Anne. I is sometimes a thief who wears transparent clothes. This is because he doesn ´t want to be seen, discovered, get caught. So, he doesn ´t speak. He ´s silent. He ´s not pronounced at all.

 

In this story, letter I had caught Anne and tried to get her in letter D, which is actually an open door. At that time, Anne was afraid. She was forced by the thief to get in the grey, dark house, through that door. So, she said HELP!

  In this way Ss remember meaning, spelling and pronunciation at the same time. They also have a great time. The top secret is that there are 4 stages in this procedure .

  1. They listen to the story while looking at the drawing

  2. They have to repeat the story. We remember more when we say it. That ´s  why teaching is the best way of learning.

  3. They draw the story the way I do. Same characters, tricks.

  4. They write the word. Then they have to find their mistakes on their own. But I have to say that they rarely make mistakes.

 

P.S.  Don ´t worry about Anne. She was saved by her best friend..
